Jackpot Digital, an electronic table game manufacturer and mobile gaming provider for the regulated casino industry, has signed a deal to install its Jackpot Blitz dealerless poker ETG at Glacier Peaks Casino, Montana.
The Vancouver-based firm specializes in multiplayer gaming products, including poker and casino games, and is operational in a number of US states.
Jackpot Blitz, meanwhile, is an ETG system that removes the requirement to have a dealer on site, with its touchscreen technology enabling gesture control as well as offering multiple payment options.
Commenting on the software and license agreement signed with Glacier Peaks Casino, Jake Kalpakian, Jackpot President and CEO, said: “We are excited to be working with Glacier Peaks Casino, located in the state of Montana, and yet another new Montana property to order Jackpot Blitz.
“Players and casinos alike are excited by our product as it offers more game options and faster, error-free gameplay, all while improving casino operational efficiencies.”
Jackpot has announced new agreements or letters of intent for 17 Jackpot Blitz table installations so far this year, and has received letters of intent for an additional 16 tables from yet-to-be-announced partners.
These 33 new orders represent approximately 50% increase in Jackpot Blitz installations.
Jackpot is also in the process of obtaining licensing for more jurisdictions, and expects to install the next generation Jackpot Blitz in the second half of the year.
Kalpakian added: “Casinos all over the world are experiencing labor shortages and inflationary wage pressures, making our product more attractive than ever before. As a company we are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the macro trend toward automation in the casino industry.
“Through the innovative dealerless Jackpot Blitz technology, casinos are quickly recognizing the benefits of more revenues by dealing more hands per hour while at the same time drastically reducing costs and eliminating operational/employee requirements all at once.
“Demand for Jackpot Blitz has strengthened since [the] introduction of our next generation Jackpot Blitz, which allows for cash in/out and easier integration with each casino’s back-end system.”
